Artist and curator Jo-ey Tang will lead the Columbus College of Art & Design’s Beeler Gallery in Ohio. He will begin his position at the museum on June 15.
Tang was previously a curator at Paris’s Palais de Tokyo, where he worked from 2014 to 2015. In that time, he curated such shows as “Inside China – L’Intérieur du Géant,” whih brought together works by Nadar, Aude Pariset, Cheng Ran, and others. Prior to that, from 2009 to 2014, he was the arts editor at n+1.
“I am excited to join Beeler Gallery at Columbus College of Art & Design to continue its ambitious programming,” Tang said in a statement. “I hope to foster an ethos of ‘slow programming’ that will counter the speed of production in contemporary art and its contingent fields, to allow for multiple temporalities and deeper encounters with artists, designers, filmmakers, and thinkers, in engaging with their practices, developments, trajectories, and influences.”
